Great fun!

I have a number of ukuleles, at many price levels, sizes and brands. For the sheer fun of it, I ordered the gloss mahogany 8-string tenor with electronics. The beauty, tone, playability is beyond the fun I anticipated. My small quibble is the built in tuner which is not accurate enough with this difficult to tune instrument. But, once tuned, the delightful fullness of chords accompanying vocals is spectacular! An entire new sound for my playing.

Wonderful instrument

This is my 3rd Kala Brand instrument. Love all 3. Like the others, this one is well-built and has an incredible sound. Picked up the tweed hardshell case to go with it. Great combo. Have been enjoying playing the 8-string since it arrived. Have been happy with all my purchases from Kala. Will likely be buying more in the future.😊👍

Fully Satisfied

Very pleased with the KA-8E. It arrived in perfect condition and the gloss mahogany finish looks great. Very good action for an 8 string and it has a nice bright tone. Experienced the usual tuning problems for the first few days until the strings stretched out but that's to be expected with nylon strings.

8 String Gloss Mahogany Tenor w/EQ

My 8 String arrived two weeks ago but in my eagerness to play it, I ended up breaking one of the E strings. I am still relatively new to playing the Uke, just twelve months now. I have never played an instrument before. I had a friend, who is a Uke instructor, change the string and tune the Uke, so now I have been playing for the past week, absolutely loving the sounds it generates. I now have four Ukes, a soprano travel Uke, a concert Uke, a 4string Kala tenor w/eq, and the new 8 string. It is a beautiful instrument, and now that I have a better feel for it, it is fairly easy to tune. A side note, this past winter I have had to have three surgeries for kidney stones, and have brought my soprano Uke to the hospital each time, playing the Uke, dressed in my Johnny, just before and after the surgeries, for the hospital staff, bringing a little happiness to these medical folks who have done so much for us in this time of Covid. Yay!!
